[1201, 1400]
• Eighteen fragments of 13th-14th century enamelled glass - chemical analyses of the vessels and enamels:
SiO2, TiO2, Al2O3, FeO, MnO, MgO, CaO, Na2O K2O, CuO, Sb2O3, SnO2, PbO, Cl, SO2, P2O5.
- all are soda-lime-sicica glasses, the high-magnesia variety.

• Enamels:
– blue - cobalt (one of the samples - high-zinc cobalt) or sulphur-bearing sodium alumino-silicate (lazurite);
– red - red oxide of iron (hematite);
– white - calcium phosphate (only one example) or tin oxide accompanied by lead oxide;
– yellow and green - low silica and high lead oxide;
– pink and pale blue - red oxide of iron (hematite) with a tin oxide.

• Questions with regard to the locality of possible sources of cobalt (probably Iran, possibly Europe) and lapis (Badakshan: northeastern Afghanistan - southeastern Tajikistan).

• Examines the differences and similarities between early Venetian enamelled glass (”Aldrevandin” group) and Islamic enamelled glass.
